Plaid and leather are two seemingly opposite textures that may not come to mind immediately as a dynamite combination. But you know what they say: opposites attract.

This fashion paradox couldn’t be truer in the charming yet punk combo of plaid and leather. Soft colorful plaids play with sexy dark leathers to give you a chic layered look that works for a day in or a night out.

Add a Leather Jacket

First of all, almost any plaid top, dress or skirt can benefit from the addition of a leather jacket. Pair your favorite comfy leather top with an asymmetrical zippered black leather jacket to elevate it from lounge-central to a rock-worthy outfit for the weekend.

Next, we’re talking big plaids. Buffalo plaid, which is enjoying a comeback in everything from kitchenware to comforters is a fun print for garments and accessories. Buffalo plaid is typically red and black checked featuring wide stripes.  Making it a natural partner for black leather. Also, pair a top or tunic with leather accessories. Or try styling a buffalo plaid dress with a leather vest for a surprising outfit choice you’re going to love.

Leather Pants, Anyone?

While few garments elicit the controversy that the mention of leather pants can. When properly fitted and styled with the right top and accessories, leather pants can be downright hot. Rock a pair of leather pants with an oversized plaid tunic in your choice of color. Accent with a silver statement necklace or choker for a casual pulled together look.

Leather Accessories

Finally, we can’t leave out the winning look of leather and plaid without addressing the plethora of fab leather accessories that you can pair with your plaid wardrobe staples year round.

A quality leather handbag is the ultimate statement item that works well with everything from your office garb to a night on the town. Leather bags in a spectrum of colors work particularly well when paired with a traditional button-down plaid shirt. If you’re a huge fan of plaid and have multiple tops to work with, this is an easy way to glam up your autumn go-to outfits.

Most noteworthy, weather boots and booties are another easy way to add a punch to your fall favorites without breaking the bank or getting too far out of your fashion comfort zone. A great pair of dark leather booties paired either with a plaid tunic, black leggings, and neutral leg warmers are the perfect outfit to transition into the cooler months.
